I independently came up with the same fix before I saw yours,
the only difference was that I avoided the extra curly braces
using

+       else
+               return !WARN(1, "invalid HE MCS: bw:%d, ru:%d\n",
+                            rate->bw, rate->he_ru_alloc);

to avoid the mix of bare if() and if() {}
